Amtrak to restore full service in Missouri

July 25th, 2011 in News

Amtrak plans to restore full train service Wednesday between Kansas City and St. Louis.

Amtrak announced this weekend that the Missouri River Runner will resume operating its morning westbound 311 train from St. Louis and the afternoon eastbound 316 train from Kansas City.

Until that happens, chartered motor coaches will continue to be used.

The disruptions started July 2 and have been the result of flooding. Freight trains unable to travel along their normal routes because of high waters had needed the tracks the passenger trains use.

Amtrak says there have been no disruptions to trains 313 and 314.
